52. Details of the provenance of the materials printed are in note 1103 below. For one example of the “Abstract's” circulation, see note 31 above.

Mayo, 68, and 1 Gordon, History of Independence 141–142, suggest that their authors may have at least read the “Abstract,” probably in the Massachusetts Spy.
